Dear Families of incoming 9th grade students at Franklin High School,

As we prepare to start the 2022-23 school year, please allow me to formally introduce myself. My name is Dr. Joseph Williams III, and I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as the principal of Franklin High School! My core educational belief is that educators should have high expectations for ALL students because our students do not lack the capacity to learn and be successful. Therefore, I am committed to leading and supporting our amazing Franklin High School faculty and staff, as we provide your child with the academic and social emotional tools that they need to be successful, both at Franklin High School and in life! We are grateful to partner with you to realize the vision of excellence for your child at Franklin High School. It truly does take a village to raise our children. Therefore, I look forward to our collaboration during this school year in providing a safe and nurturing school environment for your child, as they start their freshman year at Franklin High School! 

Please see the agenda below for the upcoming 9th grade orientation at Franklin High School:
